What Wisdom Can Do For You – Part 3

What Wisdom Can Do For You – Part 3

Reading Time: < 1 minute

CHILDREN –

Still on our series to discovering wisdom this morning, we will yet consider one more thing to note about wisdom.

Our anchor scripture remains;

Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength. By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth. I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. – Proverbs 8:14-18 (KJV)

8. Wisdom loves those who seek it.

One more thing about wisdom is that it loves those who seek it.
If you are wisdom seeker, wisdom will love you.

If you go all out seeking for wisdom, you will find it.

There will always be a difference between someone who starts preparing for an examination from the beginning of the term, and someone who starts preparing for the same examination a day before the examination.

To get wisdom, you have to be intentional and deliberate about it.

A wise person is loved because he always something beneficial to give.

So here is the conclusion; if for any reason, you feel unloved by your parents, guardians, siblings, teachers, environment or whatever, go for wisdom.

Invest in your mind. Develop yourself. Focus on being a better you. I can assure you the narrative will change I er time.

May God grant you the desired wisdom.

God bless and honour you.

Prayer:
I have the God kind of wisdom.

Action point:
Decide to be a wisdom lover today.

Declaration:
Wisdom loves me. I love wisdom.

How To Change Your Results In Marriage – Part 2

How To Change Your Results In Marriage – Part 2

Reading Time: 2 minutes

COUPLES –

Continued from yesterday…

Your thinking directs your life. Your thinking gives meaning to your life. Where your life is today is an indication of how and what you have been thinking about.

Your mind is the engine of your life, it drives your life. A healthy mind will give a healthy life.

If you are born again, there is victory for you. The solution to depression and mood swings is in renewing your mind. Your mind is the seat of your will, intellect, and your emotion. You can become emotionally stable by renewing your minds with God’s Word. You can be all God desires you to be by renewing your mind.

What is a renewal of mind? How do you renew your mind?

To renew means to simply make new, and you renew by studying and meditating on God’s Word. You meditate on God’s Word by thinking on His Word, speaking it to yourself audibly and inaudibly.

The beginning of a change in your life is when your heart is filled with God’s word! Replace those negative, stinking thoughts with life-giving and strength imparting thoughts. Replace lustful, dirty thoughts with pure thoughts.

It has been discovered that it’s only God’s Word that can positively change our minds and make it pure. As you stubbornly dwell on God’s word, think on it, rehearse it, say it, and brood on it, it will create a picture of what God really wants for you.

As you reach out for those pictures, change will begin. Change starts from the inside, not outside. In God’s word is the inherent power to cause itself to come to pass.

CONFESSION OF THE DAY
My mind is being renewed daily by God’s Word and the power of the Holy Spirit.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Father in the name of Jesus, I pull down every stronghold in my mind that is keeping me bound to low life.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY
Phil 4: 13 ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me’.

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Take relevant scriptures in the area you need renewal in your mind and begin to study, meditate and speak them to yourself.

BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY
Isaiah 2-5

How To Change Your Results In Marriage

COUPLES –

Mr. & Mrs. George are tired of each other. From quarrels to endless arguments and confrontations, it went on and on. They really want a change.

How does one really change after giving one’s life to Jesus? I thought all the struggles with sin will disappear? Where does one start from?

The key to change and transformation is a renewed mind, a change of thinking. God intends to change our lives by positively affecting our thought patterns. A renewed mind births a transformed life.

It will be interesting to know that most of our present struggles especially in our marriages have their roots in our minds, in our thinking.

‘And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God’. – Rom. 12: 2

Lustful thinking will result in a life full of lust. Some people have strongholds of negative thinking, some have what is called stinking thinking, some are full of fears, they don’t have confidence or boldness to validate or appreciate themselves in their marriage, they are full of inferiority complex.

They cannot speak their minds because they feel they have nothing good to offer. Some are full of envy, jealousy, strife, malice, anger, wrath, contentions, etc and all these have their roots in unwholesome thinking pattern.

Jesus even connected fornication and adultery to how and what we think about. He said you have committed adultery with a woman when you look at her lustfully in your heart.

To be continued…

CONFESSION OF THE DAY
My mind is being renewed daily by God’s Word and the power of the Holy Spirit.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Father in the name of Jesus, I pull down every strong hold in my mind that is keeping me bound to low life.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY
Phil 4: 13 ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me’.

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Take relevant scriptures in the area you need renewal in your mind and begin to study, meditate and speak them to yourself.

BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY

My Children Are Not Conformed

My Children Are Not Conformed

Reading Time: < 1 minute

There is a Scripture that says we should not be conformed. Dear children, do you know all scriptures written are for our own good?

The are several roles the written word plays.

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. – 2 Timothy 3:16 – 17

One of such scriptures written for us is found in the twelfth chapter of Romans.

Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you]. – Romans 12:2 AMP

Just like we read in the scripture above, it is to our advantage when we obey the instructions written in the word of God.

God is saying when we are filled with his spirit, we will not be conformed to the world and it’s standards.

Prayer for children:
Lord, we declare that our children are taught of the Lord, they are not conformed to the world, in Jesus name. Amen.

Prayer for Parents:
Dear Lord, help us to teach our children your ways and we pray that they will never depart from it.

Declaration:
I am not conformed to this world. I daily renew my mind with the word of God.

Four Ways To Guard Against Adultery – Part 3

Four Ways To Guard Against Adultery – Part 3

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Four Ways To Guard Against Adultery – Part 3. Continued from yesterday… We have been looking at ways to prevent you from falling into adulterous relationships.

I mentioned that if you can do these four things, you will be doing yourself a lot of good to guard against adultery.

1. Guard your mind

2. Guard your heart

3. Guard your mouth

4. Guard your body

Having identified ways to guard against adultery, what do you do next?

Keep your heart. Don’t be given to unproductive discussions with people who have no regard for God. Deliberately avoid such people that you know will influence you negatively! Be selective with your associations.

Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. – Pro 4:23 KJV

Message Translations says:

Keep vigilant watch over your heart; that’s where life starts. – Pro 4:23 MSG

What else to do?

Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; -1Pe 1:13 KJV

Take up the loose ends of your mind and tuck them in. Do not allow your mind to ramble endlessly on just anything. Be deliberate in filling your heart with God’s word.

Amplified version puts it this way

So brace up your minds; be sober (circumspect, morally alert); set your hope wholly and unchangeably on the grace (divine favor) that is coming to you when Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is revealed. -1Pe 1:13 AMP

If you are already entangled in adultery, seek help immediately. Destroy that which seeks to destroy you. Open up to trusted mentors or any other authority figure. Just opening up to the right person weakens the power of iniquity. If you hide it, you are ensnared by it. 

I pray that the help you need at this time be available for you in Jesus name!

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I guard my heart, mind, mouth, and body. I take responsibility for the things I do.

PRAYERS FOR THE DAY
Lord, let the fear and love of God keep me on the right path in Jesus Name

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
After all, we don’t want to unwittingly give Satan an opening for yet more mischief – we’re not oblivious to his sly ways! (2Co 2:11 MSG)

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Have a ‘to do list’ Plan today. Replace every wrong thought with God’s word 

BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY
Ezek 25
